Really Broadband

July 20, 2004

Talk about your “mixed feelings”—apparently fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) is about to be a reality in some areas, including mine—5-30Mb/s down, 2-5Mb/s up, starting at $35-$40 per month (depending on whether you want to take phone and cable from the same provider.)

The bad news?  The provider is Verizon

The worse news?  At these prices and speeds, it’s a no-brainer to do this versus Comcast.  I’ve just got to add back into my schedule an extra 40 hours or so a year on the phone with them for trying to get it fixed when it’s screwed up…

    I don’t think this will be a problem for you for a while. I don’t recall either dallas or boston being on the list of cities they were rolling this out initially.
